The article talks about the Connecticut utility moratoria ending this past September 15, which places many households at risk of having their services shut-off. However, Carenza from Thames Valley Council for Community Action (TVCCA) said they've seen a significant increase in applications for assistance. On one hand, this tells that people are more in need due to the pandemic but, on the other hand, it does tell us that households are taking advantage of the assistance that is being provided. TVCCA's program has expanded its income guidelines to be more inclusive and considers different heating sources. TVCCA continues to encourage anyone who still needs help to apply for the assistance.
